About the Owner

I purchased the farmhouse in 1987. I wanted to stay in this beautiful area of Somerset after being brought up on my parents farm just a few miles away. Swallows Nest was created from an old cowshed and hayloft (which the Swallows used to enjoy, hence the name!) I began in the hospitality by offering Bed and Breakfast from the farmhouse, then converted the Barn to two holiday apartments. Swallows Nest has proved to be extremely popular over the years, with many repeat visitors. I have now retired from B&B, and concentrate entirely on self catering holiday cottages - 4 now in total. I am enjoying welcoming people from all over the world to this delightful part of Somerset and surrounding countryside.

Stunning Country Side

  • 4 of 5

We were welcomed by Carol and found the flat comfortable and close to all sorts of tourist activities. The small flat was clean and had basic utensils. The view of the surrounding hills and farms plus the quiet were lovely.

A comfy apartment with everything that you need

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a week, and found the apartment excellent. It is a good centre for a beautiful part of the UK, close to Wells, with its cathedral, bishop's palace and market. Easy access to lovely walks and for birdwatching on the nearby reserves. The apartment provided everything needed, was comfy and well appointed. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Did we have any criticism? The only slight one was the lack of a good light to read by, but that would not put us off returning for another stay. Everything else exceeded expectations.
